Overview

About the property

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with on-site Parking and Fenced in Backyard

Located in a lovely area of Niagara Falls, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located only 3.3 miles from Niagara Falls State Park.

The master bedroom with attached bath is located on the first floor and has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor. One of the rooms has a queen bed with a small sitting room attached that has a daybed for an extra guest. The other bedroom has a double bed. The other full bathroom is on the second floor.

On the first floor in addition to the master bedroom, is the kitchen, living room and dining room, and back hallway that leads to a screened in porch and the back yard.

The house is in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls, a beautiful residential neighborhood, situated near Niagara University. The house is a 10-minute walk to the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole State Parks and a 10 min. drive or 20 min. bike ride along the Gorge to the Niagara Falls State Park. Lewiston is also a short drive up the parkway and has many cute shops and nice restaurants.

The house is most easily accessed by car but the NFTA buses do run along Lewiston Road which is on the corner and goes to either Lewiston or to Niagara Falls.

The house has wi-fi throughout. There is a SmartTV and DVD player in the master bedroom, but there is no cable (we do have an interior antenna for broadcast channels). There is a driveway for you to use to park your vehicle. Pets will be considered.

About Carroll Reetz

We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home. We love hosting visitors from all over the world and introducing them to not only the beauty of Niagara Falls but the uniqueness and history that surrounds us.

Carroll Reetz purchased this house in 2012

Why Carroll Reetz chose Greater Niagara

The Whirlpool Cottage is in the nicest area of Niagara Falls where visitors can feel relaxed and secure in their home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great time at a special house

  • 4 of 5

The house was located in a beautiful neighborhood and very close to everything we wanted to do. Excellent access to niagra state park and great transportation within the park. Going over the rainbow bridge to Canada was easily accessible from the house. The house was clean upon arrival and we felt very much "at home".

avoid the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Avoid the crowds with this house. The location is great. Bathrooms are a little small but this house has great bones a back porch ,a back yard ,well stocked kitchen , sleeps 7 , crown molding through the home and a tree lined neighborhood.

We loved the city of Lewiston it is a Gem. Grocery store and restaurants are also in Lewiston. Whirlpool park is only a few blocks away ,the wineries start after Lewiston and Whirlpool open jet boat is a MUST.

One day we visited Canada went over the Lewiston bridge Rented bikes at Zoom bike rental.

And yes we did go to maid of the mist one day (go early open 9 am ticket office opens 8:30 am)and visited falls.

This was a very enjoyable trip for the 3 of us and our small dog Bella. And we will be returning.

Lovely house near everything but in a quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, near everything Niagara Falls but in a quiet neighborhood. Small fenced yard, off street parking, very quaint house, will stay there again if I am in that area.

Charming and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from Nashville with our family of four to meet up with my parents to stay in Niagara Falls. The house was awesome. Even though there were six of us, there was plenty of space to get a little rest and privacy in the afternoons. We are grateful to our host for being so kind and attentive, and we'd definitely return.

Location location location!

  • 5 of 5

It was so helpful to be near Niagara Falls area. It probably took us no more than 10 or 15 minutes to get to the American side. Nice quiet residential area served as welcome contrast to the hubbub of the Falls areas. Although we didn't have a dog or need to smoke, both items are allowed in this house. A screened-in porch serves as a smoking room with a view of a small backyard.

Whirlpool Cottage is an older house with lots of original floors, doors, etc. Original wood floors were creaky but charming. Steps to upstairs for in that same category. Both bathrooms had been updated, and were very clean. Very nice house for a short stay to view a Wonder of the world.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay but to be clear to future guests - there is NO SMOKING in the house. We have a screened in porch or backyard for smokers. We do allow some dogs but they must be approved in advance.

Perfect location for visit to Niagara falls

  • 5 of 5

The house was around 3 - 4miles from the Niagara falls state park. Though it was so close, it was away from the crowd. We enjoyed our stay. The owner was very responsive to all the communication. We also visited the Niagara fort during our visit.
